KLC Chairman Anthony Watson attends Project Access training and the 15th Session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous issues in New York.
KLC Chairman Anthony Watson has recently been in New York participating in Project Access training with the organisation Tribal Link Foundation. The training focuses on Indigenous Peoples and the United Nations system and helps to better prepare Indigenous Peoples to engage the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous issues and other international processes. Anthony attended the training with Indigenous people from Africa, as well as candidates from North and South America.
Anthony then represented at the Kimberley Land Council at the 15th Session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues during 9th - 13th May. The theme of the session was “Indigenous peoples: conflict, peace and resolution". The KLC will provide further updates when Anthony returns to the Kimberley.
